ok well i give the same info to all people who are wondering about being pregnant,i do hope that this info i have put together through my nursing school and personal knowledge will help you! this is an honest answer and probably the best answer you will get without being redirected to another web site or simply being told to just take a test like most others will say! This is a personal experience, i was on birth control pills and i had my period for the first 5 months of my pregnancy and every urine test i took came out negative it wasnt until i took a blood test that i found out i was pregnant. and now i am pregnant again and this time i was on the depo shot to avoid pregnancy and has been breastfeeding before i got on it and was never unprotected other than not using a condom, if you have love without a condom there is ALWAYS a possibility of being pregnant no matter what u do...so here is a list of the top 10 earliest signs of pregnancy!! 10. Tender, swollen breasts One of the early signs of pregnancy is sensitive, sore breasts caused by increasing levels of hormones. The soreness may feel like an exaggerated version of how your breasts feel before your period. Your discomfort should diminish significantly after the first trimester, as your body adjusts to the hormonal changes. 9. Fatigue Feeling tired all of a sudden? No, make that exhausted. No one knows for sure what causes early pregnancy fatigue, but it's possible that rapidly increasing levels of the hormone progesterone are contributing to your sleepiness. You should start to feel more energetic once you hit your second trimester, although fatigue usually returns late in pregnancy when you're carrying around a lot more weight and some of the common discomforts of pregnancy make it more difficult to get a good night's sleep. 8. Implantation bleeding Some women have a small amount of vaginal bleeding around 11 or 12 days after conception (close to the time you might notice a missed period). The bleeding may be caused by the fertilized egg burrowing into the blood-rich lining of your uterus — a process that starts just six days after fertilization — but no one knows for sure. The bleeding is very light (appearing as red spotting or pink or reddish-brown staining) and lasts only a day or two. (Let your practitioner know if you notice any bleeding or spotting, particularly if it's accompanied by pain, since this can be a sign of an ectopic pregnancy.) 7. Nausea or vomiting If you're like most women, morning sickness won't hit until about a month after conception. (A lucky few escape it altogether.) But some women do start to feel queasy a bit earlier. And not just in the morning, either — pregnancy-related nausea and vomiting can be a problem morning, noon, or night. About half of women with nausea feel complete relief by the beginning of the second trimester. For most others it takes another month or so for the queasiness to ease up. 6. Increased sensitivity to odors If you're newly pregnant, it's not uncommon to feel repelled by the smell of a bologna sandwich or cup of coffee and for certain aromas to trigger your gag reflex. Though no one knows for sure, this may be a side effect of rapidly increasing amounts of estrogen in your system. You may also find that certain foods you used to enjoy are suddenly completely repulsive to you. 5. Abdominal bloating Hormonal changes in early pregnancy may leave you feeling bloated, similar to the feeling some women have just before their period arrives. That's why your clothes may feel snugger than usual at the waistline, even early on when your uterus is still quite small. 4. Frequent urination Shortly after you become pregnant, you may find yourself hurrying to the bathroom all the time. Why? Mostly because during pregnancy the amount of blood and other fluids in your body increases, which leads to extra fluid being processed by your kidneys and ending up in your bladder. This symptom may start as early as six weeks into your first trimester and continue or worsen as your pregnancy progresses and your growing baby exerts more pressure on your bladder. 3. A missed period If you're usually pretty regular and your period doesn't arrive on time, you'll probably take a pregnancy test long before you notice any of the above symptoms. But if you're not regular or you're not keeping track of your cycle, nausea and breast tenderness and extra trips to the bathroom may signal pregnancy before you realize you didn't get your period. 2. Your basal body temperature stays high If you've been charting your basal body temperature and you see that your temperature has stayed elevated for 18 days in a row, you're probably pregnant. 1. The proof: A positive home pregnancy test In spite of what you might read on the box, many home pregnancy tests are not sensitive enough to detect most pregnancies until about a week after a missed period. So if you decide to take one earlier than that and get a negative result, try again in a few days. there is a site you can go 2 to look at the exact test you took and see what other people got as either a positive or negative, the site is www.peeonastick.com, this way if you need advice on if its positive or neg this will give you a visual. Once you've gotten a positive result, make an appointment with your practitioner.

This is tricky because usually a pregnancy test will give a positive reading just about 11 days after fertilisation of the ovum, but in your case, if you never get periods, you need to get checked out to see if you are actually ovulating at all. Birth control pills don't give you real periods ( i.e. based on a normal hormonal cycle of ovulation, and then shedding of a non-pregnant uterine lining). With birth control pills your body is conned into thinking it is pregnant so that you don't get pregnant! You then get a 'bleed' when you stop taking it. Natural hormones of all kinds are the 'messengers' used by your body to control all kinds of functions. The love hormones are the messengers that tell your ovaries and your uterus when to do what they are supposed to do. Birth control pills are artificial messengers which cause artificial symptoms. Women are sometimes prescribed birth control pills to reduce their menstrual flow if their periods are particularly troublesome, heavy and painful. If your own hormones are out of balance to the degree that you don't get periods at all, I think it is highly unlikely that you would be ovulating, and therefore the chances that you could become pregnant are virtually nil. Even girls with irregular periods sometimes have difficulty getting pregnant. Having said that, it only takes one egg and one sperm to make a baby! Please go back to whoever prescribes your birth control pills and tell them what is happening with your body. I'm surprised that you were prescribed birth control pills when you don't have periods. Don't leave these things to chance. It may be that you need altogether different treatment and that these pills are causing you symptoms you shouldn't be having. It sounds like your body is confused and needs some help. Artificial hormones are very powerful - they can make men grow breasts and women grow beards!

Definite Signs of Pregnancy:
The only way that a woman can be identify she is pregnant is to take one of the following tests: Blood or Urine tests and a pelvic exam are necessary to confirm pregnancy. 

Urine test confirm pregnancy.

  • Urine Pregnancy test is required to confirm pregnancy (Recommended if your period is missed)

  • A blood test or a urine test will help in determining the presence of the HCG (Human chorionic gonadotropin) hormone.

  • An ultrasound scan will also detect a pregnancy at 4-6 weeks.

  • Fetus can also be felt through abdominal palpations at around 3 months

 Here are some pregnancy signs...

Implantation bleeding can be one of the earliest pregnancy symptoms. About 6-12 days after conception, the embryo implants itself into the uterine wall. Some women will experience spotting as well as some cramping. 
Other Explanations: Actual menstruation, altered menstruation, changes in birth control pill, infection, or abrasion from intercourse. 

A delayed or missed menstruation is the most common pregnancy symptom leading a woman to test for pregnancy. When you become pregnant, your next period should be missed. Many women can bleed while they are pregnant, but typically the bleeding will be shorter or lighter than a normal period. 
Other Explanations: Excessive weight gain/loss, fatigue, hormonal problems, tension, stress, ceasing to take the birth control pill, or breast-feeding. 
Swollen or tender breasts is a pregnancy symptom which may begin as early as 1-2 weeks after conception. Women may notice changes in their breasts; they may be tender to the touch, sore, or swollen. 
Other Explanations: Hormonal imbalance, birth control pills, impending menstruation (PMS) can also cause your breasts to be swollen or tender. 

Feeling fatigued or more tired is a pregnancy symptom which can also start as early as the first week after conception. 
Other Explanations: Stress, exhaustion, depression, common cold or flu, or other illnesses can also leave you feeling tired or fatigued. 

This well-known pregnancy symptom will often show up between 2-8 weeks after conception. Some women are fortunate to not deal with morning sickness at all, while others will feel nauseous throughout most of their pregnancy. 
Other Explanations: Food poisoning, stress, or other stomach disorders can also cause you to feel queasy. 

Lower backaches may be a symptom that occurs early in pregnancy; however, it is common to experience a dull backache throughout an entire pregnancy. 
Other Explanations: Impending menstruation, stress, other back problems, and physical or mental strains. 

The sudden rise of hormones in your body can cause you to have headaches early in pregnancy. 
Other Explanations: Dehydration, caffeine withdrawal, impending menstruation, eye strain, or other ailments can be the source of frequent or chronic headaches. 

Around 6-8 weeks after conception, you may find yourself making a few extra trips to the bathroom. 
Other Explanations: Urinary tract infection, diabetes, increasing liquid intake, or taking excessive diuretics. 

If you are pregnant, the skin around your nipples may get darker. 
Other Explanations: Hormonal imbalance unrelated to pregnancy or may be a leftover effect from a previous pregnancy. 
While you may not have a strong desire to eat pickles and ice cream, many women will feel cravings for certain foods when they are pregnant. This can last throughout your entire pregnancy. 
Other Explanations: Poor diet, lack of a certain nutrient, stress, depression, or impending menstruation.
There's only one sure way and that is by taking a test. The earlier you find out the more options you have and more time to think about it. Physical symptoms are not much to go by since they are also pretty much the same for getting your period.
